General Psychology is defined as the science that deals with the behavior and processes of people’s minds. The word «psychology» comes from Latin and was first used at the end of the 15th or beginning of the 16th century by the Christian humanist and poet Marko Marulic, in his work entitled «Psichiologia de ratione animae humanae» (Psychology of the nature of the human soul).

General Psychology uses quantitative empirical research methods to study behavior.

Although psychological notions are mainly used in evaluations and treatments of different psychopathologies, in recent decades, psychology professionals have become part of management or human resources departments in companies, in fields related to child development and aging, the world of law, sports, the media, and the forensic sciences.

On the other hand, a great part of psychologists are professionally involved in therapeutic activities such as clinical, consultancy or education. But one part is also dedicated to carrying out research from universities on a wide range of topics related to human behavior.
